Can you use fresh or frozen shrimp?

I prefer to use fresh shrimp for this recipe, but if you can only get frozen, you can absolutely use that. Make sure, that if you do use frozen that the shrimp are thawed and remove any excess moisture with kitchen towel. Once you’ve done that, you can follow the air fryer egg roll recipes as is.

Can you freeze these egg rolls?

Absolutely! These egg rolls are great when frozen. Too freeze, prepare egg rolls as directed and rather than cooking, place them on a baking sheet and freeze them. Once frozen, store them in a freezer bag in your freezer. To cook the egg rolls from frozen in your air fryer, add them directly to a preheated air fryer and cook on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes.

What do you serve them with?

Air fryer egg rolls make for a great Chinese appetizer. I like to serve them with a simple sauce or dip like sweet chili or soy. They are the perfect addition to your homemade Chinese feast!

Why make them in the air fryer?

For those that know me well, you will know I adore my air fryer! These egg rolls come out so perfectly crispy without needing to deep fry them. Other than flipping the rolls half way through cooking, it’s a hands off method meaning that you can get on with other things. It’s healthier, easier and the results are amazing!
